Mothers Union (MU)
The MU exists to share Christ’s love by encouraging and supporting marriage and family life. We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of every month for a 10 minute Prayer Group followed by a corporate Holy Communion Service. After the service, refreshments are available and an opportunity to chat. For more information contact the branch leader Janet Mcbride 01937 843562.
Friends of Music
The Friends want people of all ages to make music, by joining the Choir and Music Group and by encouraging young people to take up instruments for the enhancement of worship. There are benefits for Friends too, through priority booking and concessions at Concerts and Recitals and some good social times.
